Hill;7/13/2007, Vol. 14 Issue 85, p6
The article reports on the move taken by Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton in seeking support from fellow Democrats for revoking President George Bush's authorization for the use of force in Iraq in the U.S. Clinton was accused by Republicans of tacking leftward on the war to court her party's liberal base. Her amendment to the defense authorization bill poses some risk to her presidential bid as the de-authorization reminds liberal voters that she has yet to refuse her 2002 vote in favor of war.
